Tessa's Birthday

So even though I'm almost a month behind, I felt the need to blog! Tessa's birthday was the beginning of this month and since she was turning 5 I decided she should have an awesome birthday party. But holy crap, this is the last party she's ever having. She's finally at an age where she has a bunch of little friends, so she wanted all of them to come. Then, she has a bunch of cousins who she loves, so they all came too. So 17 kids under 5 later, I was spent. BUT, I nailed it. I totally almost Taylor-ed her birthday party and just had an awesome luncheon for my friends, but then I realized I only have like 2 friends that aren't my sisters/sister in laws and one lives out of state, so yeah... She had a bakery themed birthday party, so we converted our garage into a little bake shop thing...we had to line it with plastic from floor to ceiling. Alex then told me that we make an excellent kill room (Dexter fans will get this) and I said, "you wouldn't know, you don't even watch Dexter.." but I totally agree. We rocked it. Here are pictures... Tessa in her newly decorated apron. And she was dumping sprinkles on her cookie.One half of the party room. This is where my family mostly sat with the twins that live by us. When they sat down they said to Stone, "yeah, we're twins." It was fun.The other half. I didn't get a picture of the food table, but it was cute. I put cookie cutters in jars and everything.This is the picture I got of the food table. Dexter kept stealing oreos, taking a bite, then putting them back. He just didn't want anyone else to have them. But Sebs didn't care, he ate 3.See? Look how happy.This is Tessa opening presents. She was super excited for everything, as seen here.Gift of the year for her would be this outfit-way to go Stone and Seb...or your parents. She seriously lived in it for a week until I finally had to wash it. Look at that form...Then she got to be a special person at school, so she made a poster and took cupcakes. Last year she had just gotten her shots, which I like to do to my children right around their birthdays, so she was sick on her day. Not this year-she was crazy fine.And can't forget this lil guy. Little do you guys know that right before this he stole a cupcake from her...then right after he pulled her hair. He's a sweetie. And spare me the comments about how red his hair looks...I know, and I'm fine with it. It's fine. It's fine. I'm fine. It's fine.
We had a little party with my family and Alex's family, but I don't have those pictures on the computer yet, so sorry families...you guys were all there, so you know what it was like.

Another Birthday...

So August-December is huge for birthdays for the Madsen/Osborne family. That's why I have a billion birthday posts for people. Even though they don't read my blog, I like to give shout outs whenever possible. Me and TRL. So...

Happy Birthday Dad!

This is my dad, Red Masen. Or Ted Madsen depending on who is sending him mail. He is 58 years old today...you could probably tell by his awesome spectacles he is wearing in this picture, which you may have seen on Instagram already. We were playing Horror Movie Trivie on Halloween, and he had to borrow my mom's glasses.

Obviously Sully and my dad. I have this picture in our house, and Sullivan finally figured out that the guy in the picture and his grandpa are the same person. He still has no idea who that baby is though...bless his heart.

My dad is super cool, guys. I know everyone thinks that, but you probably haven't met my dad. Plus he's totally in the mob. We think...

Happy, Happy Birthday Tessa Dear!

OMG right guys? Tessa is 5 years old today. I can't believe I have a 5 year old...I'm still so young, so it's crayzay. She woke up today in the best of moods, as she always does, and told me 'not to touch her because she has to wake up to being 5 years old'...Bless her lil heart. I then asked her if she felt older and wiser, and she said "No, stop looking at me." So five years old is off to a great start! Feels about the same as when she was four...but you've got to love her little attitude. She perked up when she was finally awake enough, so she doesn't always talk like that...she's not a morning person, like her mother. Anyway, I'll post more about all her birthday celebratory events when I get the pictures up!
